Wisdom is Supreme

Wisdom is Supreme by Laurie McTier

"My son, pay attention to what I say; listen closely to my words. Do not let them out of your sight, keep them within your heart; for they are life to those who find them and health to a man's whole body. Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life." Proverbs 4:20-23

True wisdom comes from the very heart of God. Wisdom is keen insight and understanding. Wisdom can also be defined as accumulated knowledge which we acquire through circumstances in our lives. Through life's experiences, we gain knowledge, discernment, maturity, and understanding. We have many examples throughout the Old and New Testament of individuals and families who learned from God as they traveled through life's experiences. They learned how to see God's hand at work in their midst. They learned how to hear His voice and obey His commands. We can also see the price that is paid when we fail to yield to God and give Him complete Lordship.

Supreme wisdom is the level of understanding that is greater than anything we have known before. It is the highest possible level or degree of understanding that we can obtain. As we endure trials and tests in our Christian walk, God will begin to build our character and show us supreme wisdom. We may not see have a burning bush experience, but God can be just as real to us today as He was to Adam and Eve, Moses, David, Elijah, Paul, the Apostle John, Mary and Martha, and so many others.

The source of supreme wisdom is God's Word. God wants us as His Children to spend time in His Word today and everyday. The Bible is a resource of treasures and promises straight from His heart. It is His love letter to us as His Children and it is full of truths, riches, and beauty. God's Word can serve as a light unto your path. He wants His word to serve as a beacon providing us direction and caution of dangers that lie ahead.

In today's scripture passage, God encourages us to listen and pay close attention to His Word. The only way that we can hear from God and know His truths is by spending time with Him. God's word is a treasure; He does not want us to let it out of our sight. Spend time today by diving into the Word of God. Find a jewel of scripture that can be an encouragement to you today. God's word also tells us to

My prayer today is that we will learn from the mistakes of others. I pray that we will not be as the Children of Israel, who though God was at work in their midst everyday, they never saw His hand or heard His footprints. The Children of Israel were too busy seeking personal gain and had to much pride to dwell on the work God was doing in their midst. As Christians in today's society, we must take a stand. Don't just live a mediocre Christian life. Stand up for Christ. Stand up and seek to learn His Word. Spend time with God, seeking His direction and will for your life. To go a step further, the way you can truly find out about God is through spending quality time with Him in prayer and in the Word of God. As we read His Word and meditate on His promises, God will give us life, liberty, and joy.

God Bless you today as personalize His word and find the treasures that He has for you.
